Mixing and Battling in New Trailer for Band Mashups
At first glance, “Band Mashups” may look like a ripoff of other rhythm games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. But it sounds like the only thing this one shares in common with those games is a genre and visual style…and, well, some elements of the guitar battles in Guitar Hero III. This Wii-exclusive will have you battling against friends by trying to keep in time rolling on-screen directions by waving the Wii-mote. At the same time, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of weapons to throw off your opponent and give yourself an edge. Whoever is in the lead determines which musical style gets played, leading to some interesting mashups, as this video shows. Yeah, I know: a mostly original Wii party game that doesn’t involve a series of ridiculous and repetitive mini-games? Unheard of.
